Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen has joined ALTERNATE aTTaX, moving out of the Danish scene to take over the leadership of the German squad.

After a long tenure in the lower echelons of the Danish scene, where he lead players such as Jakob “JUGi” Hansen, Nikolaj“niko” Kristensen and Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke early in their careers, Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen has decided to try out a new challenge, joining ALTERNATE aTTaX.

HUNDEN will be calling in English for the first time in his career

The Danish in-game leader’s tenure has been marked by his best players being picked up by organizations higher up the food chain, with Heroic’s acquisitions of JUGi, niko andPatrick “es3tag” Hansen being the latest ones.

HUNDEN confessed that dealing with the Danish scene was becoming frustrating, and that lead him to join the German team:

“I honestly needed to try something new. Danish Counter-Strike has irritated me on an extreme level for some time now, and the evil circle continued to arise each time the team reached a certain level.”

“So today I am joining ALTERNATE, where the goal is the same, but the challenge is different. This will be my first time to act as an English speaking in-game leader. It’s a tough task, but we are making progress every single day.”

Niklas “Sliver” Timmermann, ALTERNATE aTTaX’s Deputy Manager, added a statement as well, welcoming HUNDENand saying goodbye to Christian “crisby” Schmitt:

“Rumors already called it and now we may gladly confirm that we’ve just signed more than a player but a GOD in his profession! From now on Hunden will be our IGL. May the heavens have mercy with our opponents, Hunden won’t.”

“Still, we would like to thank Crisby for his extraordinary services in the last two years.”

ALTERNATE aTTaX now have the following roster.

Denmark Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen
Germany Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch
Germany Stefan “stfN” Seier
Germany Lukas “ecfN” Kauer
